Sarabande by George Goltermann has been arranged as quintet for two violas, two celli, and one bass.

If your string ensemble doesn’t have a bass player, there is an arrangement of the Sarabande which can be performed with violists and cellists. A flexible scoring arrangement, the first part may be played with viola or cello. In order to cover the other four parts, 2 violists and 2 cellists are required. Therefore the Sarabande can be played with 3 violists and 2 cellists or 2 violists and 3 cellists.

The first performance of the Sarabande was for cello quintet.

All three versions are available as digital downloads.
